    Pros

    A great first job during high school, you learn so much from Home Depot and can apply it at home.

    Cons

    There's only so many hours you can have as a part timer so it sucks but that's how the company has it set up.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much to say, management does their job and I mean what more can you ask from them, everyone is very nice and hard working.

    Pros

    Benefits, competitive pay, culture / values, lower key in the winter.

    Cons

    As a manager long hours, do more with less mentality caused us to be behind a lot. Leadership within my particular building didn't seem concerned with your needs compared to needs of the business. Associates knew a lot more that was going on or about to happen before the rest of the leadership team. If you are looking to attend college to move up in your career and work I would not recommend becoming a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Hire associates to match work volume, train staffing and implement any larger operational changes or restructuring BEFORE peak seasons / events.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits for FT and PT and THD really shows it cares about all associates and in helping them to create their own wealth and success in life through some many different resources/programs offered. THD really does try to live its 8 core values. This really is a great place to work at any level!

    Cons

    Working inside the store can sometimes be hard; especially trying to meet the THD standard of customer service, without enough staff in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to training and support associates

    Pros

    Education about products was a benefit.

    Cons

    Non-set schedule. May have to work outside during christmas time even though you do not work in garden. Takes on many supervisor tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Care about balancing employees work schedule and life. Don't overload them. Stop your managers from having relationships and sexual encounters with their employees.

    Pros

    They gave me a chance when no one else would hire me. I am disabled and they still hired me. I would have stayed with Home Depot but my seasonal job ended.

    Cons

    Fast paced training once on sales floor. Have to pick up information and procedures fast or make mistakes. A LOT to absorb for me, others my age seemed to do better. Worked the mid-shift and by time i got on the clock the day was well underway.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what they go through day to day so no advice from me.
